Wild Wednesday & Me

What's another 85 Billion Dollars top of that Multi-"Trillion" dollar deficit that's looming just over the horizon. It's another Wild Wednesday and the world is still turning, but probably a bit broadsided with all that's going on from now through the next 100 days. Then it's time to celebrate another new year. Can you believe it? Believe it. There's no time to spare, so let's get busy quickly!...

Dialing for Dollars: Obviously the current financial mash up's and shigity that's become a thorn in our cash cushions is allegedly a problem at the embattled, Arkansas AIDS Foundation. From the e-blasts that I've been scanning, it seems that the organization is in the midst or has been in the throws of cutbacks, but sorta not letting it's local providers know in a timely manner. You know the drill, clients show up for services, receive them, billing sent for payment, viola," there's no funding to pay the bills." Even though directed by the current Board of Directors to facilitate these notices promptly, apparently the proverbial ball has been either dropped or some one is still not minding the store at AAF and beyond. Need more? Yes ,there's more, so come on back to catch up on the latest from the Arkansas "benefit A-go- go" AIDS Foundation.

Linking in the Rock: Gayintherock. com is linking up with other cyber forces, including this forum. If you missed there roll out a few weeks back, then you can still get in on the action by subscribing to the site. All the details concerning our "working association" hasn't been ironed out, but perhaps it will be a win-win for not only Central City,but hopefully statewide. If you sign up, let us know or better yet, let them know that you heard about it here first. Of course we will be returning the favor with a link in our section shortly. Kudos to the creators for reaching out with a unity mindset. Go their now:

Getting involved in the election process is vital in this upcoming cycle. Here's a great chance to get some intensive grassroots training and maybe meeting someone new along the way. I'm encouraging you dear readers to put your foot down and support the candidate of your choice. There's got to be some changing in this nation and it's up to you to be apart of that process.
Personal contact at a local level is the most effective way to identify existing Obama supporters and introduce undecided voters to the kind of change we are working to bring about. That is exactly the purpose of Camp Obama Arkansas - you will receive training in the organizing and voter contact techniques that won Senator Obama the nomination. With this training, you will be able to help the Obama team reach voters in both Arkansas and neighboring battleground states.
